  1. I'd personally go with the Corsair HX1000W, but you could try the Cooler Master Silent Pro M1000.
  2. Do you actually need that big a PSU?
    What are you going to power with it?
  3. Here you have some quality 1000W (aprox.) PSUs:

    CORSAIR TX950 950W (by CWT)
    CORSAIR HX1000 1000W (by CWT) (modular)
    CORSAIR AX1200 1200W (by Flextronics) (modular)
    ENERMAX Revolution85+ 950W (modular)
    ENERMAX Revolution85+ 1050W (modular)
    THERMALTAKE ToughPower (W0133) 1200W (by CWT) (modular)
    COOLER MASTER Real Power M (RS-A00-ESBA) 1000W (by Enhance electronics) (modular)
    COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold ( RS-C00-80GA-D3) 1200W (by Enhance electronics) (modular)
    SAPPHIRE PURE 950W (by Enermax) (modular)
    IKONIK Vulcan 1200W (by CWT) (modular)
    SILVERSTONE OP (OP1000-P)1000W (by Impervio)
    SILVERSTONE Zeus (ZM1200M) 1200W (by Impervio)
  4. That Antec is superior, read some reviews.
  5. I'd check you need that much power first - unless you're running multiple GTX480s in SLI you don't need that much juice.
  6. Read the reviews below. I can't find the Quatro 1000W but there is a review for the Quatro 1200W and Quatro 850W.

    I have 3 Antec Quatro 850W ~> 2 years old. I have 2 HX1000W( 4 months). My personal preference is Corsair. All my new builts are to use Corsair PSU.

  7. Ok I ordered the Corsair because newegg was having a sale and I liked the reviews the most. I want a 1000w because I have a 480gtx and will probably sli when the prices come down a tad. I also like just having a lot of overhead in power supplies because Ive had that be a bottleneck before.

    I had an X3 Ultra 1000w but Im pretty sure I fried it which is why I needed to order a new one (Computer randomly shut down and after I installed the 480gtx wouldnt even display windows (although I could hear it start in the background).

    Ill let you know how it goes, thanks for the help everyone!
